Imagining a police officer on the job might conjure up images of traffic stops, interrogations or arrests. But one Farmington, Utah, officer did none of those things when he responded to a June 2018 call. And yet he still went above and beyond his usual duties in a big way.
It all started on the FrontRunner, a Utah commuter train that runs from Provo through Salt Lake City and then onto Ogden. It makes more than ten stops in total, including one in Farmington. And it was there that police officers responded to an emergency call.
While the train was in motion, a woman on board allegedly assaulted another passenger. Sergeant Christopher Pope, with the Davis County Sheriff’s Office, told ABC 4 Utah, “The male happened to be blind, and said that a female had come up to him.”
